CAR EVENTS

CRUISE NIGHTS (& Other Recurring Car Gatherings)

*We are now in process of building up our 2022 event listings... The 2022s are now back to being highlighted in BLUE... As always, we welcome you to please send us your CT Shoreline-area old car event listings!

This Calendar is originated and periodically updated by the Shoreline Antique Auto Connection, a not-for-profit enterprise run for antique auto enthusiasts, by antique auto enthusiasts. As the information presented here is gleaned from a WIDE variety of sources, there is no way we can vouch for the truth or accuracy of anything, and we STRONGLY suggest you get in touch with the applicable event contacts listed, to make sure the event is indeed going to be held (especially before you make a long trip to attend!). Thank you. SAAC, P.O. Box 3353, Stony Creek, CT 06405, e-mail CommonGear@aol.com, web site http://www.shorelineantiqueautoconnection.com/ . Please send your CT Shoreline-area event listings for inclusion here (non-marque-specific events preferred).

WHY DO WE DO THIS? - We maintain this Calendar as a service to our fellow local-area antique auto enthusiasts! It's not perfect, but we always work very hard at it, and try to verify as much as possible everything that we publish. And we love to share it! We are not professionals at this--only enthusiasts who enjoy the old car hobby. What would really make us happy, however, is that those who may like to copy and paste our exhaustively researched (always with sources credited), written-out & detailed listings for their own web site use, to please occasionally give us a little bit of a shout-out! Thanks for your understanding and support! See you out there at the shows & cruises!

"WHERE ELSE ARE GOOD PLACES TO LOOK FOR UPCOMING CAR EVENT LISTINGS FOR THIS AREA?" - Frankly, at this stage of the game (mid-June 2020), the only calendar I really trust is THIS ONE. Other calendars that I look at regularly appear to be suffering from "lack of interest" by their editors/maintainers--and I can't say I blame them, since so much of the calendar updating I seem do these days is to revise events into cancelled events--it's depressing. For some reasonably reliable places to go look for events in Connecticut in general (we make no excuses for our desire to stay CT Shoreline-focused on this page), we first recommend The Connecticut Council of Car Clubs Events Calendar (whose editor John B. is extremely conscientious about keeping it accurate and updated; may we also suggest joining their Facebook group page for lots of event updates as well: https://www.facebook.com/groups/connecticutcouncilofcarclubs/), and then also Hemmings and also OldRide.com ... Beyond those, good luck... SUGGESTION: Contact the club or organization directly to see if their event is actually going to happen--relying solely on someone's haphazardly-maintained compendium of events (and I'm not saying I'm infallible--I only do this as a hobby after all) can often get you into trouble... Happy event hunting!

Hi, Steve, It’s been a long, cold winter!!!  I hope this will bring some warmth and joy to us all. Lucille’s Memorial Cruise will be MAY 11, 2022, with a rain date of MAY 18, 2022, again at Panera Bread on Rt. 1 in Guilford, starting at 5 p.m. and going until 8 p.m.  Panera has been open for most of the winter from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. so I checked with the manager and we will be allowed to stay until 8 p.m. However, for the last hour no food or bathrooms will be available, unless they change their hours between now and then… I’ll have flyers  at the end of March… It’s too soon to know if some other debilitating virus will hit us… Thanks, --Cathy…”…  editor’s note – Thanks so much Cathy for the early heads-up, really appreciate the advance notice, as it gives us ample time to get the event listing onto the SAAC Calendar in plenty of time, so that folks will be able to make their plans for mid-May this year accordingly! We really enjoyed making it in person to last year’s event, which was super-well-attended (participating cruise cars all the way around Panera’s!), and a ton of fun (including some great Rockin’ Richard oldies). I don’t remember exactly what my excuse was for missing the first one (I’m guessing that this year’s will be the THIRD annual Lucille Sharp Memorial Cruise), but we also really appreciated the great photos from it that Lucille’s daughter Doreen Forest shared with us!... We are definitely looking forward to attending again this year!... Thanks again Cathy—you are absolutely “on top of things” as usual! ... (this event was added to this calendar as of 3/4/2022)

Here is the flyer…”… webmaster’s note – Nikki provided a copy of the flyer, which I was unable to find a copy of on the Madison Historical Society’s web site, HOWEVER, there is a DEDICATED EVENT PAGE with a whole lot of detail about the event, which you are urged to go view online at: https://www.madisonhistory.org/mhs-antiques-fair/ - IMPORTANT: There is also, toward the bottom of that page, specific information about the ANTIQUE CAR SHOW, and specifically a REGISTRATION FORM for you to fill out and submit electronically, along with a description and picture of your vehicle… IMPORTANT: It also states that “There is limited space,” and also that “Vehicles will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis.” So please bear both of those things in mind, and go do that page to review & apply to show your antique car: https://www.madisonhistory.org/mhs-antiques-fair/ … Continuing with Nikki’s 4/13 note: “…He asked if we could help him spread the word and get more antique cars there. I thought of you immediately. I told him that I could share it on our page and that I would speak to you and see if you had any thoughts…”… webmaster’s note – I asked Nikki a follow-up question bout how many antique cars the Antiques Fair organizers would like/be happy with showing up. She indicated: “…I think that if they got 20 they would be happy. He told me they will be sectioning off an area for the cars near Route 1 and away from the vendors…”… All sounds great, thanks Nikki, and we are pleased to help spread the word about this very cool & unique opportunity for local antique car owners to show off their rides in an exclusive and very visible and exciting setting. DON’T FORGET TO GO TO THAT REGISTRATION PAGE AND MAKE SURE THAT YOU PRE-REGISTER PROPERLY. Oh, and I’m going to assume that the $6 admission charge noted near the top of this listing won’t apply to those antique car drivers who’ve properly pre-registered and gotten their cars accepted—but you should make sure to contact the organizers to confirm that… Thanks again Nikki, and the Madison Historical Society!... More info – I looked at the MHS’s Facebook page and didn’t find any specific info about the Festival, but you’re certainly encouraged to go check out their page, and please do be sure to  give ‘em a “Like” while you’re there: https://www.facebook.com/MadisonHistoricalSociety ...

CRUISE NIGHTS (& Other Recurring Car Gatherings) 

IMPORTANT: Since the world of Cruise Night listings seems to be especially filled with old, out-of-date information--which has, on occasion, led to frustrating drives to non-existent cruises (we speak from direct personal experience!)--we've decided to do our best to only list confirmed listings (though we still urge you to call ahead before making any long trips, since we cannot guarantee anything), which we'll clearly highlight with a noticeable color--we have been alternating red and fuchsia in recent years to highlight the most recent years' listings. *12/15/2021 UPDATE - Will use BLUE for the new 2022 listings!!... Anyway, now that it's the New Year, if you have any confirmed 2022 cruise and/or recurring-type event listings, please send us yours--especially those Shoreline-oriented, for inclusion here--Thanks!...

Thanks to the CT Shoreline Cars & Coffee folks for all they contribute to our local Shoreline-area car enthusiast culture!… *3/20/2022 UPDATE: DATE REVISION - We just noticed CT Shoreline Cars & Coffee's recent Facebook post to their page (https://www.facebook.com/ctshorelinecarsandcoffee) that the Season Opener is on Sunday, April 24th, so we are making sure that this listing gets properly updated!...

We enjoy all vehicles and there are no sponsorships or awards… Doug Zumbach began hosting these gatherings in 1995. These Sundays start around 8 am to gather and enjoy a cup of coffee followed by a leisurely drive through the countryside… Caffeine and Carburetors is a way to indulge the gear head in all of us… Being a gathering and not a juried event, there is no registration, and events are free for all…”… Time is nominally listed as 8:00am to 11:00am, there is no cost to participate, and the gathering place is listed as Zumbach’s Gourmet Coffee, 77 Pine Street, New Canaan, CT 06840, and phone for more info is 203-966-2704… And there you have it!...

Quoting from the event flyer posted on the Hemmings dedicated info page (https://www.hemmings.com/events/detail?listing_id=58473) where this event was found (direct flyer link: https://assets.hemmings.com/uimage/77519114-0-0.jpg?rev=1): “…The popular Neshantic Station Flea Market is joined in 2021 by the new Neshantic Station Car Show! The Car Show will be held one Saturday each month from March through October, from 7:30am to 1:00pm… (list of dates): Saturday, March 20 … Saturday, April 17 … Saturday, May 15 … Saturday, June 12 … Saturday, July 17 … Saturday, August 14 … Saturday, September 18 … Saturday, October 16 … Registration: There is no charge for car owners to bring and show their cars, and all antique, classic, and collector cars, trucks, and other vehicles are welcome. We just ask car owners to email us at carshow@nechanic.organd register so we know how many vehicles to expect. In lieu of registration fee, we ask all car owners to bring a cash or food donation for the Somerset County Food Bank… The Car Show is just minutes from Routes 202 and 206. To find the location via GPS, enter “111 Elm Street, Branchburg, NJ”…”… webmaster’s note – Why a car show in New Jersey on the SAAC Calendar? Reason #1 is that it’s a nice early-season event (and we love the early season events), and Reason #2 is that it seems a lot of events more local to us are either not being planned yet (obviously due to COVID concerns), or are being planned and cancelled already (which is exceptionally depressing, and for the same reason), and Reason #3 is that it just plain sounds like fun, and if I have a free Saturday, I’ll definitely consider a drive out there to check it out—if not as a participant, at least as a spectator! New Jersey is a beautiful state to visit!… (this cruise/recurring event was added to this calendar as of 2/25/2021)
